Small promotional publicity brochure for the Kodak Brownie Starlet Camera, published by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd in Melbourne circa 1957 - 1966.

The Brownie Starlet was introduced globally in 1957 and manufactured in Australia in 1958. Australian television commercials for the Starlet were made in 1962 and the dual currency shown on some price tickets eg HT 20793 suggests that the Starlet may have still been sold in 1966 when decimal currency was introduced in Australia.

This was the second camera model to be assembled, packaged and distributed by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd. The Star series of cameras were assembled from more than 95% Australian parts. They were also the first low-priced cameras "designed to take color slides, as well as color and black-and-white snapshots".
